HOTEL REVIEW: Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara, Abu Dhabi

Even though I am currently in full-on Milano mode from fashion week, I still have some Abu Dhabi posts for you guys, so hopefully you won’t mind all the switching back and forth! After sharing our first stop in Abu Dhabi with you guys (read the full review HERE), of course I also wanted to write up a review of the second hotel we decided on. One area of the city that had me interested right from the start was the Mangroves National Park. Say what? A national park in the middle of a city like Abu Dhabi … meaning: in the desert?! Yes! And it is absolutely breathtaking. We stayed at the Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara and I have to say, I really loved it!!

HOTEL REVIEW: Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi

For the first part of our stay in Abu Dhabi, we decided on the Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, which is located across the canal from the stunning Sheikh Zayed Mosque. The second I saw the view on the hotel photos, I was sold. Plus, the entire hotel is styled in Arabic decor, which is something I wanted. Usually I prefer more modern interios, however, for Abu Dhabi, I thought the more traditional look was perfect. Greeted by dates and coffee, we immediately loved the place. Even more when we entered our room (we booked a deluxe room) and saw the private balcony and canal view – of course with the mosque in the background.

TRAVEL: K+K Hotel George London – Review

Time seems to fly these days, and I can’t believe it has already been over 2 weeks since we visited London with the family! I shared a huge travel diary over on The Daily Dose, but wanted to also write about the K+K Hotel George, where we stayed for the weekend in London. Over the past few years, I mainly book my hotels based on recommendations I find on other blogs. My main travel inspo is definitely the lovely Juliane from Style Shiver! I feel like we have the exact same taste when it comes to travelling and I’ve loved every single place that I tried after reading about them on her blog. Hopefully, some of you will find my personal recommendations just as helpful, so here it goes my hotel tip for London:

TRAVELS: Falkensteiner Hotel Schladming

On Sunday, I hopped into my little VW Polo and headed south-east from Vienna. The final destination was Schladming in Styria for a bit of fun in the snow (as I am sure you guys have already seen on Instagram). I was surprised that the drive only took about 2:40hrs and how easy it was to get there from Vienna. Upon arrival, I checked into the super cozy Falkensteiner Hotel Schladming, which was definitely love at first sight. It is hard to describe, but they have somehow managed to bring the feeling of a snug little mountain hut to a large hotel. All the rooms are furnished in beautiful wood from the area, they have red and green sofas and reading chairs throughout the hotel and the beds are pure bliss. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the awesome walk-in shower (with a little glass action next to the bed) and stunning white tiles in the bathroom. The gondola is literally a 3 minute walk from the hotel and their spa area is pure bliss. The only thing that was missing during those 3 wonderful days: Mike! I definitely want to come back with him for some relaxing down-time in the mountains
